Having created the first check, you are allowed to create further checks for the same applicant, as long as the previous check is not still ongoing (i.e. check has been completed, withdrawn or cancelled). You will receive an error message if you try to create a check for an applicant with an ongoing check. Applicant details can be updated between check creations.
